    1. Summary: I really appreciate this post because of many reasons. The title for one is great and offers a twist to many of the other Fake News spotting articles I have seen, it is more empowering, and I want to empower my students when I teach them about Fake News. The summary for this is the same as the other two, educational about Fake News by a reliable source, so I will leave it to that. Assessment: I like how this article has ten questions with mini-questions underneath. It highlights important words in red and by having a red flag to symvolize Fake News, it can help the reader put the two together. This source is almost like a mix of the two other ones I have, it is a good mediator. Relfection: This source again is very useful for me. It gave me more ideas about how I would want tot each my students about Fake News by having the little red flags and tips at the bottom of the page. It goes into more detail on the surface of the article and I like that. It has shown me even more what to look out for when trying to spot Fake News. All three of my sources together can make me a powerhouse Fake News detector! Which is great because that is what I want my students to be too.

    2. Summary: This text was originally a picture provided by Facebook to help it's users spot Fake News. I really like it because it appeals to a wide-range of people. It helps young teenagers understand what Fake News can look like and gives adults a good, basic, overview of what Fake News can look like. I believe this past election season prompted Facebook to educate its users about Fake News since now, more than ever, people use Facebook to learn about the news, and consequentially, express their ideas. Assessment: This is most definitley a useful source. I appreciate how it shows me pictures with each tip it gives. It's language iss also very clear and understandable. Everything here is more black and white except for the last two tips which can be harder for people to figure out, but still just as important. This information is reliable, it came from Educators Technology.com and was put on Facebook, so it had to go through all their people as well. This source is a good templete for me to base off how I would teach Fake News to my students with Disabilities. Reflection: This source was the first one that really showed me the indicators of fake news. It is mostly about what one can see to identify Fake News, but it is super helpful. These obvious characteristics are what I can first teach my students with disabilities. The last two tips will be harder, but are necessary. Students need to know about Satire and how some people just write lies for a living, for the clicks.

    1. Summary: I really like this source because it provides amore in-depth analysis of Fake News Stories than my first article does. This source, just like the other ones I am showing for my annotated bibliography are all educational. (I think going over this again is not imperative.) Assessment: Everything I highlighted in yellow is something I believe might be more tricky to teach/talk to students with Disabilities about. This does not mean they are bad (they are actually great ideas to take in) I just have to think about how one can teach that information. What I highlighted in blue are tips the author said that I really appreciated and believe that a lot of people do not think about. I think people who are educated in a way about the fact that Fake News is out there would like this source. I see people who activley share Fake News everyday and there is no way this source would get them to see that all the news they know of is Fake. They would get really angry. That is why me educating my students about Fake News is so important! I think tis source seems less biased because in "Does teh story attach a generic enemy?" it includes the both the Liberal and Conservative side. Being liberal myself, I have been awre of mostly only Conservative Fake News that attacks liberals. Reflection: This source is a great addition for me because it gives me a more detailed lense through which to examine Fake News. It talks about points that rely on one's emotion as well as the actual writing. It gets to points that may are really important and go beyond the surface of a Fake News article.
